  • Baby teeth are replaced by adult teeth. In 8months of time, his adult tooth should have erupted. If premature fall of baby tooth occurs because of baby tooth being knocked out, then there is gap between baby tooth fall and adult tooth eruption. There might be congenitally missing adult teeth present or adult teeth might be impacted. Without clinical examination and without seeing the x-rays, it is difficult to give definite diagnosis. You can take your son to a pedodontist who is specialist in children dentistry. Dentist will take an x-ray to see whether adult teeth are present or not. If adult teeth are present, then he will see the amount of soft tissue or bone present on the tooth and will predict the amount of time taken by adult tooth to erupt. If adult teeth are impacted, then eruption incision or orthodontic pull may also be required to pull the adult tooth out. If adult tooth is congenitally missing, then it can be replaced.
